Rethymno Youth Hostel is the hostel to visit when in Greece !

.. “ Imagine going to the huge island of Crete and then finally arriving in this amazingly ethnic and gorgeous town called Rethymno. You follow the directions and go under the old venetian arch, through an authentic Greek market and finally arrive at this quaint and small paradise of a hostel. There is this large tiled courtyard to sun bathe, a patio to play cards, talk and drink-but most importantly the opportunity to socialise with people and the awesome staff “ …

Rethymno Youth Hostel has always been the most sociable landmark since tourism started on the island of Crete years ago and a home away from home for travellers who wish to make new friends and discover from its very central position the endless natural and historical beauties of Crete .

Centrally positioned on the island of Crete, travelers can use our hostel as their base for day trips to the most attractive sites of the island like the Samaria Gorge, Elafonisi ' pink beach ' , Ballos beach , Lake of Kournas, Preveli beach , Knossos Palace , Festos Minoan town and lots more natural and archaeological sites in our area . Our helpful staff will always
be there to offer you the best tips .

Entering from the street you will find a historical Venetian building - overlooking one of the towns imposing minarets - with stone walls and wooden floors upstairs. Downstairs there is a beautiful patio surrounded by the green of our gardens for relaxation . 

We are set within a peaceful neighbourhood in the heart of Rethymno old town yet close to town's gorgeous long (10 km) sandy beach and the whole island's most exciting nightlife !

In the evening you can chill out on our patio ,make use of our free WiFi , cook meals for yourselves or have a drink with your fellow travellers before heading out to the local bars and restaurants.

Prices are per person per night.
